The turners 1 club will co-host this fall’s John
Jordan Two Day Demonstration at the
The Erie County Fair will
be held from Wednesday, August 9th through Sunday, August 20th.
The Turners 1 and Turners 2 will hold their Make-A-Wish charity fundraiser at the fair. Put the dates on your
calendar so you can participate. We'll be in our usual spot on the porch of the
Woodcarvers building. Steve Imerese, Rich Mialki, and Al Schultz are the organizers for the fair fund
raising event this year. You can lend a hand by making items ahead of the fair
as well as "working the booth" at the event. You can make items now
and add them to the stock available for the fair. Al Schultz is collecting fair
sale turnings at the Turners 1 meetings and Jake Debski
is doing the same at the Turners 2 meetings. Spend a few minutes making
things and dropping them off now so there isn't a mad scramble just before
or during the event. If you need ideas for things to make, visit the fair example
items page on the web. For the last couple of years, we've raised over
$6000 each year for the
Show & Tell: Thanks for sharing their work to, Jim Schnellinger- biscuit cutter, Don Hoffmann- pin cushion & bottle stops, Pat Boggan- necklace, bracelets, Steve Imerese- segmented bowl, Debbie Hachey- lidded box, Jim Rupracht- vase, bowl, candle holder, Jim Vasi- lidded bowl, Marwin Feldman- vase, & Kurt Hertzog- pens, lidded box, ornaments.
Demo: Barry Yavener from Buffalo State College informed us of the intense design and detailed execution that goes into a art object for competition. He brought three art objects, thick segmented large bowl, mirrored wall & bowl, and a bowl on a stand. All items were wonderfully crafted and a pleasure to look at. Great job and thanks Barry.
